CakePHP 3.2.0 Released

mark_story
The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 3.2.0. This is the first stable release for the 3.2 branch. Going forward 3.1 will only receive security updates. 3.2 is a backwards compatible release with 3.1 and 3.0 and provides new features and performance improvements.

Minimum PHP 5.5 Required
------------------------

CakePHP 3.2 requires at least PHP 5.5.9. By adopting PHP 5.5 we can provide better Date and Time libraries and remove dependencies on password compatibility libraries.

Deprecations
------------

As we continue to improve CakePHP, certain features are deprecated as they are replaced with better solutions. Deprecated features will not be removed until 4.0:

* ``Shell::error()`` is deprecated because its name does not clearly indicate that it both outputs a message and stops execution. Use ``Shell::abort()`` instead.
* ``Cake\Database\Expression\QueryExpression::type()`` is deprecated. Use ``tieWith()`` instead.
* ``Cake\Database\Type\DateTimeType::$dateTimeClass`` is deprecated.  Use DateTimeType::useMutable() or DateTimeType::useImmutable() instead.
* ``Cake\Database\Type\\DateType::$dateTimeClass`` is deprecated.  Use
  ``DateTimeType::useMutable()`` or ``DateType::useImmutable()`` instead.
* ``Cake\ORM\ResultSet::_calculateTypeMap()`` is now unused and deprecated.
* ``Cake\ORM\ResultSet::_castValues()`` is now unused and deprecated.

Disabling Deprecation Warnings
------------------------------

Upon upgrading you may encounter several deprecation warnings. These warnings are emitted by methods, options and functionality that will be removed in CakePHP 4.x, but will continue to exist throughout the lifetime of 3.x. While we recommend addressing deprecation issues as they are encountered, that is not always possible. If you'd like to defer fixing deprecation notices, you can disable them in your **config/app.php**:

```php
    'Error' => [
        'errorLevel' => E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_USER_DEPRECATED,
    ]
```

The above error level will suppress deprecation warnings from CakePHP.

Carbon Replaced with Chronos
----------------------------

The Carbon library has been replaced with [cakephp/chronos] (https://github.com/cakephp/chronos). This new library is a fork of Carbon with no additional dependencies. It also offer a calendar date object, and immutable versions of both date and datetime objects.

New Date Object
---------------

The ``Date`` class allows you to cleanly map ``DATE`` columns into PHP objects.  Date instances will always fix their time to ``00:00:00 UTC``. By default the ORM creates instances of ``Date`` when mapping ``DATE`` columns now.

New Immutable Date and Time Objects
-----------------------------------

The ``FrozenTime``, and ``FrozenDate`` classes were added. These classes offer the same API as the ``Time`` object has. The frozen classes provide immutable variants of ``Time`` and ``Date``.  By using immutable objects, you can prevent accidental mutations. Instead of in-place modifications, modifier methods return *new* instances:

```php
use Cake\I18n\FrozenTime;

$time = new FrozenTime('2016-01-01 12:23:32');
$newTime = $time->modify('+1 day');
```

In the above code ``$time`` and ``$newTime`` are different objects. The ``$time`` object retains its original value, while ``$newTime`` has the modified value. As of 3.2, the ORM can map date/datetime columns into immutable objects as well.

CorsBuilder Added
-----------------

In order to make setting headers related to Cross Origin Requests (CORS) easier, a new ``CorsBuilder`` has been added. This class lets you define CORS related headers with a fluent interface.

RedirectRoute raises an exception on redirect
---------------------------------------------

``Router::redirect()`` now raises ``Cake\Network\Routing\RedirectException`` when a redirect condition is reached. This exception is caught by the routing filter and converted into a response. This replaces calls to ``response->send()`` and allows dispatcher filters to interact with redirect responses.

ORM Improvements
----------------

* Containing the same association multiple times now works as expected, and the query builder functions are now stacked.
* Function expressions now correctly cast their results. This means that expressions like ``$query->func()->current_date()`` will return datetime instances.
* Field data that fails validation can now be accessed in entities via the ``invalid()`` method.
* Entity accessor method lookups are now cached and perform better.


Improved Validator API
----------------------

The Validator object has a number of new methods that make building validators less verbose. For example adding validation rules to a username field can now look like:

```php
$validator->email('username')
    ->ascii('username')
    ->lengthBetween('username', [4, 8]);
```

Console Improvements
--------------------

* ``Shell::info()``, ``Shell::warn()`` and ``Shell::success()`` were added.  These helper methods make using commonly used styling simpler.
* ``Cake\Console\Exception\StopException`` was added.
* ``Shell::abort()`` was added to replace ``error()``.


StopException Added
-------------------

``Shell::_stop()`` and ``Shell::error()`` no longer call ``exit()``. Instead they raise ``Cake\Console\Exception\StopException``. If your shells/tasks are catching ``\Exception`` where these methods would have been called, those catch blocks will need to be updated so they don't catch the ``StopException``. By not calling ``exit()`` testing shells should be easier and require fewer mocks. 

Helpers initialize()
--------------------

Helpers can now implement an ``initialize(array $config)`` hook method like other class types.

FormHelper
----------

The ``action`` key for ``FormHelper::create()`` has been deprecated. You should use the ``url`` key directly.

Fatal Error Memory Limit Handling
----------------------------------------------------

A new configuration option ``Error.extraFatalErrorMemory`` can be set to the number of megabytes to increase the memory limit by when a fatal error is encountered. This allows breathing room to complete logging or error handling.

Development on 3.3 will now start. The [Roadmap](https://github.com/cakephp/cakephp/wiki/3.3-Roadmap) for 3.3 is still incomplete, so if there is a feature or improvement you'd like to see reach out on IRC and github.  The documentation for 3.2.0 is currently available in the [book](http://book.cakephp.org/3.0/en) and the [API](http://api.cakephp.org/3.2).

As always, a huge thanks to all the community members that helped make this release happen by reporting issues and sending pull requests.
